Wrapping up 2017 & starting off 2018 with a bang!

It’s been a while since I’ve updated the blog, and that’s because we’ve been going nonstop with cruises, corporate shows and events in Vegas! After finishing up our summer in Europe we headed to the Disney Wonder for a few weeks of shows while touring Mexico, and then we have several performances on different Royal Caribbean ships taking us all over the Caribbean. Back in Las Vegas we performed close up strolling magic at some private events, and then were were off to Dallas, Texas for a corporate performance as a part of the “Champions of Magic” and then back to Vegas for the red carpet grand opening of “Masters of Illusion” at Bally’s Hotel.

We enjoyed Christmas at home in Las Vegas, and then after the New Year we were back to Disney Cruise Line for a season performing on the Disney Fantasy! We’ve been headlining in the Walt Disney Theatre each week with our illusion show, as well as performing a cabaret show for the adults in the nightclub. 

Walt Disney Theatre on the Disney Fantasy

We’ve been visiting lots of beautiful places in the Caribbean including the Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Mexico and Jamaica, but the highlight is always Disney’s private island in The Bahamas, Castaway Cay!

On the Disney Fantasy we have been lucky enough to be onboard during “Star Wars Day At Sea.” We caught the new Star Wars movie in the theater and got photos with lots of the characters too. The entire ship is themed to Star Wars and it is so much fun!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On January 26 & 27 in Las Vegas, Kyle and I were honored to serve as judges for the Miss Las Vegas pageant and the other Southern Nevada Regional pageants that are local preliminaries in the Miss America Organization. This was really special for me, as I was Miss Las Vegas 2006 and my experiences in the MAO really help shape who I am today. Most people are surprised to find out that it is not a typical “beauty pageant’ at all. In fact, 75% of the scoring comes from interview and talent, and it is the leading scholarship provider for women in the world. I was fortunate enough to earn over $15,000 in scholarships from the MAO during my two years as a titleholder. 

We spent over 5 hours grilling the contestants during private interviews, and questions ranged from scholastic achievements and career goal, political topics and current events, their talents and personal community service platforms. The girls were intelligent, well spoken, charismatic, talented and active in their community. Congrats to the new titleholders, you were all so impressive!

We’ve got a few more weeks performing on the Disney Fantasy, and later this month we’ll be performing on Royal Caribbean’s Jewel of the Seas as well between our Disney shows, so it’s another busy month for us! Valentine’s Day is coming up, so I’ll leave you with a little Valentine’s Day magic from me!  Thanks for reading – Mistie 

Kyle & Mistie judge Miss Las Vegas 2018

Kyle & Mistie Knight were honored to serve as judges for this years’s Miss Las Vegas and Southern Nevada Regional local preliminaries in the Miss America Organization. This was extra special for Mistie as she is a former Miss Las Vegas herself! For almost five hours the judges met with the contestants for private interviews, discussing their academic achievements and aspirations, career goals, community service as well as political and current events, and with the private interviews accounting for 25% of their final score. The following evening contestants competed in onstage interview (20%), talent (30%), evening gown (15%) and lifestyle & fitness in swimsuit (10%). Congrats to all of the new titleholders!
